The aa sport fmic will be fine for your application.

Use the extra funds that you save by not getting the er and charge pipe for something else like m3 suspension parts, tires or whatever

You've got to be kidding me that you just bought whatever FMIC brand was posted here 1st. AA Sport is probably best priced, but (IMHO) Helix is best value.

Any intercooler will be a huge upgrade than the stock one.. Maybe little differences here and there nothing major..
I would just get a meth kit, It does what an intercooler does but better and raises your octane level..

Do you think the shroud makes a significant difference?
